Kung hei fat choy! We’ve barely got back into the swing of things from the Christmas break and before we know it, Chinese New Year is here again. With so much going on it’s hard to know where to go or what to do in such a short space of time, which is why we’ve put together this handy guide for all of your CNY needs.
Since Chinese New Year is all about a fresh start, it’s important to look your best with a new hair cut and fresh nails for good luck for going into the year of the rooster.
Get the luck!
Not only is red good luck for Chinese New Year, but it’s also the top colour this season; so why not add luck, life and a little bit of fun to start off the year of the rooster! Our partners at Hair Riffic in Central are experts when it comes to bringing life and personality into hair with staff that listen to your needs!
Short hair is in and there’s no better reason to get in style and cut away the year’s bad luck than to go for a new style! Hopefully the year of the rooster won’t be as cheeky as the monkey!

Where to go
Hong Kong is chaotic at the best of times, but throw in a public holiday and fireworks and you’re in for a whole new world of crowds! That’s why we always feel it’s best to book a spot to sit back, relax and watch the breathtaking fireworks to celebrate the new year. Aqua Spirit is the perfect spot to enjoy these views with their floor to ceiling windows, canapés, drinks and live DJ for just $580! For more details, check out their event page!
Make a Wish!
Pay a visit to the Lam Tsuen Wishing Tree this Chinese New Year to take part in one of Hong Kong’s most treasured traditions. It’s simple: just write your wish on a paper, then attach it to a string with an orange and toss it over the tree. If it successfully catches on one of the branches and remains hanging, your wish will come true!
Happy Chinese New Year!
